'[EE]: small production run PCB assembly blues'

Hi PICsters (and closet AVRsters)

My company is produces a couple of products which require small surface
mount boards which have proven unattractive to assemble.  The problems
are that the boards have a low parts count and are low volume.  By low
volume, I mean 2.5k boards/run, one run only expected this year.

We have been dealing with a company out of Hong Kong, but have had
*very* unreliable delivery.  I have shopped locally, and with the
exception of very small companies which are hand assembling, no one is
interested, or the costs are astronomical.  I've been getting the boards
we urgently need hand assembled locally to meet our commitments while
our production order has gone from days to many weeks late.  This saves
face, but is much too expensive!

Anyone have any suggestions for a reliable and economical assembly
company for small volumes.  I'd prefer in North America, but I suspect
economics will drive us back to the east.


Thanks, Lyle

Not sure what cost etc there is - I interviewed for this place 3 years
ago but ended up getting firm job offer elsewhere at the same time.

I did see SMD rework and placement tooling in the shop there.

I believe Olimex does this sort of thing (http://www.olimex.com).  I've never
used that service, but I found their PCB prototyping to be excellent...

There is a small electronic assembly plant in Elbow Saskatchewan that I
tried for the first time last week. They populated 5,  3.000 x 4.000,
double-sided surface mount boards for us. Upon inspection I noticed that
the one
side of a couple of resistors did not get soldered; however, overall the
work was very good. They are excellent to deal with and their price was 1/2
what we are used to paying in town, with delivery in 1 week by Purolator.
They were recommended to me by a PCB designer and I'm happy to pass along
the recommendation. If you decide to call them for a quote, here's the
contact information
